Back to work in earnest now.
We had a staff meeting for Worcester Youth Music Peripatetic teachers – very enlightening. I discovered that this word in French refers to a prostitute! Maybe I need to change the colour of my light bulb in the porch!
But I discovered the TRUE meaning of the word at Chipping Campden last week. They wanted all the peris in during the first week – utter madness. So I spent 3 hours walking around the school trying to find and winkle out various pupils, most of whom didn’t know I would be there so hadn’t brought any music. AND there was a fire drill so I became aquainted with the playing field too!
